USER GUIDE  
ARENA/ RANGER  
OVERVIEW  
®
ARENA is a Windows based software package that provides an easy-to-use  
graphical interface to monitor and operate HVAC applications applying LonWorks  
technology.  
A typical application is, for example:  
A Commercial building using plant controllers for primary plant control such as air  
handling units, heating circuits or boilers  
In ARENA, such a running application is also called “Site”.  
Via a LON interface, ARENA provides full access to:  
Plant controller data (datapoints, time programs, alarms, application parameters)  
Some of the many features available are listed below:  
Monitoring and access of HVAC system (district heating, heating and ventilation  
plants)  
Viewing temperatures and valve positions  
Enhanced alarming with history files, reports and statistics  
Alarm servicing facilities such as  
alarm notifications from remote controllers and/or remote ARENAs  
alarm routing to different destinations (email, printer, other ARENAs)  
based on time of day and criticality  
Providing global time programs for individual overrides with displaying three  
months intervals  
Schedule Input similar to Microsoft Scheduler  
Multi-Site Management with:  
Support of connections from a supervisor ARENA to remote sites, where  
those remote sites do not require an ARENA installation  
Direct connection to up to 4 local sites with up to 4 LON interfaces  
Remote sites management with iLON 10  
Remote ARENAs with local site(s) management  
Remote ARENAs with iLON 10 sites management  
Operation depending on individual privilege  
Maximum of 100 sites can be managed  
Alarming depending on source, condition and target information, alarm  
filtering  
Manual Alarm Clearence  
Trending depending on device, plant and segment  
Log data from your HVAC systems  
Complete Backup and Restore Functions  
Improved Graphic Editor for life graphic with animated pictures and direct  
operating links  
ARENA is designed to be used on a standard PC. The primary purpose of the  
ARENA program, is to gather a wide variety of data and display it to the user in an  
easy to understand graphical format for viewing and easy operation.  
Should a device be in alarm condition, the ARENA user has only to select the device  
in question, to be taken to a screen which will provide more detailed information on  
the alarm condition. An Alarm list screen is also available. This screen lists all alarm  
incidents and enables the ARENA user to identify, in detail, each controller that  
activated an alarm signal. The list also contains the reason for the alarm signal, the  
date and time that the alarm condition occured and also the date and time that the  
alarm condition was accepted (acknowledged).  
Historical data is available from each device, and can be displayed in either text or  
graphical format. An example for this is the 24-hour temperature log which provides  
detailed information of controller data. This provides documentary evidence that  
buildings have been maintained at the correct temperature, and that the BMS  
system is running economically. The fact that ARENA stores historical data means  
that it is possible to analyze the reasons for alarm conditions over a period of a day,  
a week or a month.

USER GUIDE  
ARENA also offers multi-level password protection to restrict access of unauthorized  
users.  
All adjustments to system operating parameters are logged by ARENA, together  
with users identification. This access restriction provides a very high degree of  
system protection against accidental or malicious damage.  
ARENA can be equipped with individual graphic data and will be able to display  
selected information in a graphical environment. The tool to be used to create  
graphic templates and graphic navigations is the ARENA EDITOR.

ARENA Service  
The underlying software of ARENA is the service, named ARENA service or simply  
service. This service is accessible in the system tray and is indicated there as  
square service icon  
. The actual operating mode of the service is indicated by  
different colors of the service icon:  
Green = Service is running  
Red = Service has stopped  
Yellow = service being started or stopped  
Via right mouse-click on the service icon, the following basic functions, are available:  
NOTE: As long as the service is running, all online changes will be stored to the  
ARENA database (e.g. trend data will be collected) even if the ARENA user  
interface is not started.

Backup / Restore  
Backing up a project copies the ARENA database information in one single file to a  
backup directory. Restoring the database retrieves a copy of the database to place it  
in the PC. This procedure is useful if the PC files are corrupt or if changes were  
made that need to be erased.  
Backups and Restores can only be done locally and complete. It is not possible to  
backup/restore parts of the ARENA database because “large info” as trends and  
alarms can be deleted from the backup before doing it or after restoring it. Backups  
contain the graphic pages too. Backup/Restores via Web are not possible.  
Data can be restored from a previously back upped database. If a backup is done  
with a previous ARENA 2.xx version, it will be automatically upgraded.  
NOTE: This Backup / Restore function restores ARENA data only but not controller  
data like time programs and settings.

Export Data to ARENA Editor  
You can export the complete site structure (incl. time programs) from a running  
ARENA into a file.  
Then, the file can be opened in the ARENA Editor to allow picking the information  
for the data bindings. The names of the items (e.g. sites, controllers, datapoints,  
NVs, etc.) are displayed in a tree as in ARENA and can be picked. Changing of alias  
names in ARENA will not be reflected in the graphics and after the renaming in  
ARENA, the data binding will still work.

USER ADMINISTRATION  
The user administration is used for creating users and assigning particular user  
privileges (roles) to the users. Administration also includes editing and deleting of  
users.  
Roles and Privileges  
A role determines the privileges that the user will have when working with ARENA.  
A role with its determining privileges is pre-defined and cannot be changed. User  
privileges of a certain user can be changed by assigning another role. In ARENA,  
the following role – user privileges combinations are assignable to users:  
Role  
User Privileges  
Manager  
Service privileges plus:  
Creation, edition and deletion of users with lower roles.  
Service  
Keeper privileges plus:  
Changes of datapoint attribute, parameters, network variables and  
time programs. Adjustments for installation and scanning. Alarm  
acknowledgement. Creation, edition and deletion of users with  
lower roles  
Keeper  
Viewer  
Viewer privileges plus:  
Time program changes (incl. setpoints). Alarm acknowledgement.  
Creation, edition and deletion of users with lower roles  
Viewing statistics and reports generation.  
As the table shows, the predefined roles are arranged hierarchically and the  
sequence with descending priority is as follows:  
Manager  
Service  
Keeper  
Viewer  
Example:  
When assigning the ´Service` role to a user, a user having a role below ´Service`,  
for example ´Keeper`, is not able to change datapoint attributes. A user having a  
role equal to or higher than ´Service`, for example ´Manager` is able to change  
datapoint attributes.  
The table shows, that the logged user can create, modify and delete users with a  
role lower than its own.  
User Profile  
For each user within a project, a user profile with the following properties will be  
created:  
User name  
Role (User privilege)  
Password  
Access Restrictions (definable per site local or remote)  
A user is identified by its user name.  
One of the predefined roles will be appropriately assigned to the user (name). This  
assignment automatically determines the user privileges, which the user are allowed  
to execute in the ARENA he is logged in. All users having a role higher than or  
equal to the assigned role will have this user privilege enabled in ARENA, all others  
will not.  
EN2Z-0906GE51 R0708

href="
USER GUIDE  
ARENA/ RANGER  
In addition, a password for each user must be issued for secure operation of  
ARENA.  
Finally, for comfortable remote operation, a user can have an Auto-Logon property  
assigned that allows logging into the remote site without entering Login name and  
password again.  
Login, Information Access and  
Password Handling  
When entering a site, you must login with user name and password. After logged in,  
you will see all information that you have access to, based on your role. When you  
click on items that are unavailable due to your role (e.g. when a service user selects  
configuration), you are asked for logging in again.  
NOTE: Usually, ARENA will not display items/functions that are not available for  
the current user role. However, in graphics there may be links that require  
a higher user level (in this case, a login is forced). Also, a login is forced  
when you enter a direct link to a page in the browser:  
You have not to login again, even when going to another site (e.g. to an ARENA  
remote site), as long as on that site a user with the same user name and password  
exists.  
You can change your own password without invoking the User Administration.  
IMPORTANT  
It is strongly recommended to delete default users or change the default  
password of each role since the password reads the same as the  
corresponding role.

SITE MANAGEMENT  
Local Site Support  
ARENA supports the connection to up to 4 local sites.  
Remote Site Support  
ARENA supports remote sites, which are connected through iLON 10 or through  
another remote ARENA. That ARENA is called Supervisor ARENA.  
Ranger supports remote sites, which are connected through iLON 10 only.  
iLON 10 Sites via LAN  
ARENA supports remote sites, which are connected through iLON 10. Only one  
ARENA can be connected at the same time to one iLON 10.  
If a connection between an ARENA and an iLON is established, a second ARENA  
cannot connect to the iLON 10. This is indicated by a message.  
ARENA / ARENA via Modem  
1
Connection is only possible if an incoming connection is defined beforehand  
manually in Windows.  
Example:  
ARENA A -> ARENA B connection via modem  
On ARENA A, configure a remote ARENA B. On ARENA B do nothing.  
Expectation is that the user does not need to configure on Arena B explicitly an  
incoming connection.  
Connection Types  
Arena can establish a remote connection either via modem dialing or LAN  
connection. ARENA differentiates between these two connection types. Depending  
on the infrastructure, ARENA supports opened connections in parallel.  
Modem connection  
After ARENA restart, ARENA will not automatically establish a connection to a  
remote site.  
LAN connection  
After ARENA restart, ARENA will automatically establish a connection to all  
reachable remote sites  
CAUTION  
Two ARENAs are only allowed to be connected via one connection type,  
LAN or modem. That is, it is not allowed to connect two ARENAs to each  
other in multiple ways, for example, via LAN and modem.  
LAN  
ARENA 1  
Modem  
ARENA 2  
ARENA 3  
LAN  
Connect Sites  
You can manually connect to a site. The manual connection can be established via  
right-click on the site in the site tree.  
Disconnect Sites  
You can manually disconnect ARENA from a local or remote site and disconnect all  
local or remote connections.  
Automatic Disconnection of Modem Sites  
ARENA supports an automatic disconnect mechanism for sites connect via modem:  
After a definable time, ARENA pops up a dialog that asks you if you want to remain  
connected. You can decide whether to “remain connected for another X minutes” or  
to disconnect. X is the predefined connection time, which is changeable in the  
popup dialog. If you do not react for a defined reaction time (e.g. 60 s), the

connection is automatically terminated. Automatic disconnection prevents “forgetting  
to close a connection”. It is used for modem connections only.  
NOTE: If a remote site is disconnected, the supervisor ARENA has a time out of  
up to 2 minutes before the tree gets refreshed to indicate offline state.  
Site Combinations  
The max. of 100 sites can be arranged in one supervisor ARENA system. In the

Switching between Sites  
You can switch between sites using the site tree presenting all configured sites.  
You can switch to a remote site either with or without connecting to the site (Offline).  
When connecting to a site without physically connecting to it, only historical trend  
and alarm data will be available. This means that a supervisor ARENA will be able  
to store alarms and trend from other sites. When switching to a local site, you will be  
automatically connected.  
System Limitation  
One ARENA per local plus one iLON 10  
At the same time, only one ARENA can access an iLON 10 (no parallel access  
possible).

Connect PC and modem to the same power supply. In case of a general power  
failure, PC and modem will be restarted simultaneously.  
User Authentication and Access  
on Remote ARENA  
The user is identified by its user name and password. According to the users´ role,  
the user can have defined access to particular functions (viewing, editing, etc.).  
Connection to Remote ARENA  
through Stand-alone Browser  
or Supervisor ARENA  
A connection to a remote ARENA is possible:  
through a browser: Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher  
through another ARENA, i.e. Supervisor ARENA  
A supervisor ARENA can connect to remote ARENAs via  
TCP/IP  
ARENA-ARENA Dial-up*  
VPN  
Display remote ARENA within  
Supervisor ARENA  
When connecting from a Supervisor ARENA, the Supervisor ARENA shows the  
Web-front end of the remote ARENA in the same way as if it was locally connected.  
The site name is displayed on top of each page, so that you know on which site you  
are currently working.  
Remote Site Configuration via Browser Remote sites can be configured in the same way as local sites, that is, e.g. it is  
possible to:  
Change trend settings  
Import description files  
For detailed information on Internet Explorer settings when using ARENA as client,  
please refer to “How to operate ARENA / RANGER from a Client PC” in the ARENA  
/
IRANGER Installation Guide, EN1Z906GE51.  
Concurrency of Connections  
A remote ARENA can send out an alarm while a supervisor ARENA has dialed in.  
This requires the connection of 2 modems.  
Trigger a remote connection to  
Supervisor ARENA  
A remote ARENA is able to trigger a connection via LAN to a Supervisor ARENEA in  
order to send out an alarm.  
Timeout after Disconnection  
If the remote site of an ARENA-ARENA via LAN site combination is disconnected,  
the supervisor ARENA has a time out of up to 2 minutes before the tree gets  
refreshed to indicate offline state.  
Remote Site with iLON 10  
Remote sites with iLON 10 allow incoming connections for a Supervisor ARENA.  
Connection through a stand-alone browser is not possible.

User Authentication and Access  
on Remote Site  
The user is identified by its user name and password for the modem or LAN  
connection.  
Initial Setup of the Remote Site’s  
Communication Settings  
The configuration of the ILON 10 needs to be done via the Supervisor ARENA. In  
order to save the iLON 10 configuration in ARENA it is necessary to be connected to  
it.It is sufficient to do one of the following:  
send the initial setup to the remote site upon the first dial-in or via a web browser  
interface which is accessible on the Supervisor ARENA  
configure the iLON 10 gateway device in the office prior to installation using a  
software tool  
Remote Site Display  
Connecting the Supervisor ARENA via iLON 10 shows the Web front-end of the  
remote site in the same way as if the ARENA is locally connected. The site name is  
displayed on top of each page, so that you know on which site you are currently  
working.  
Dial out from a remote site  
via iLON 10 to a Central  
Supervisor ARENA  
The remote site dials out to a Supervisor ARENA in one of the following events:  
a critical alarm has occurred  
a uncritical alarm has occurred  
a new critical alarm has occurred before elapsed lockout time  
After a dial-out, a lockout time elapses (24 h) to prevent high telephone costs  
through frequent dial-outs. New dial-outs can only occur after the lockout time has  
expired, except if a new critical alarm has occurred.  
For each event, the logout time is reset. The lockout-time is synchronized between  
controllers.  
Dialing iLON 10 Destinations  
Alarm Forwarding  
iLON 10 only dials-out to one Central Supervisor ARENA  
The supervisor ARENA provides an option to forward alarms to different  
destinations at different times. Configuration for alarm forwarding, see the “Alarm  
Forwarding” section.  
Supervisor ARENA  
Monitoring Remote Sites  
Authentication of remote sites on supervisor ARENA  
When remote sites dial out to a supervisor station, they must provide user name and  
password. Connection is only successful if the remote site can be authenticated by  
the supervisor ARENA. This is secured for dial out of an ARENA or iLON 10.  
Handling of incoming Calls by the  
Supervisor PC  
The supervisor station accepts incoming connections from at least one remote site  
in parallel to the locally connected sites and in parallel to an established dial-in  
connection to a remote plant. This means that at least 2 modems can be connected.  
This secures, that even if a remote site is dialed-up or connected by LAN, the  
Supervisor station is still able to receive alarms from other sites.  
NOTE: Only Microsoft XP limits the number of installed modems.  
Access to trend / alarm  
buffer information  
When monitoring remote sites, trend and alarm buffer information can be accessed  
by all users. For remote sites with iLON 10 the following information can be  
accessed:  
Alarm buffer  
Trending can be done only while online (life trend)  
Trend data upload from sites of a remote ARENA  
Trend data stored on the remote site can be uploaded and merged into the  
Supervisor ARENA’s trend database for remote sites with ARENA. Upload occurs

Alarm data upload from sites of a remote ARENA  
Alarm data stored on the remote site is unloadable and can be merged into the  
Supervisor ARENA’s alarm database upon any user request (manual upload).  
Timeout after Disconnection  
If the remote site of an ARENA-ARENA via LAN site combination is disconnected,  
the supervisor ARENA has a time out of up to 2 minutes before the tree gets

NOTE:  
It is forbidden to use any of the Umlauts Ä, Ö, Ü, ä, ö, ü in site names  
because this may result in an unexpected behavior of ARENA.  
b. In Site Details, enter optional additional description, e.g. customer name,  
address, etc.  
3.  
Under Local Connection, do the following:  
a. In Connect through, select the LON interface to be used to establish the  
connection. One LON interface card is required per local site and ARENA  
supports max. 4 LON interface cards at maximum. If no LON interface is  
selectable, then all interfaces are in use, or drivers are missing.  
NOTE:  
If the Arena PC has multiple ethernet adapters installed and iLON 10 via LAN  
is not connected to the default adapter (typically the one on the board), there  
is now way in ARENA to define which LAN adapter ARENA should use for  
the iLON 10.  
Workaround:  
Open the "\Service\Runtime.Service.exe.config" file.  
In the line <add key="IlonLANInterfaceName" value=""/>  
put the name of the LAN interface into the quotations of ´value` as it is  
displayed in the Windows Network Connections dialog.  
Example:  
<
add key="IlonLANInterfaceName" value="Local Area  
Connection 2">  
This will make ARENA use the ´Local Area Connection 2` for connections to  
the iLON 10.  
The entry can stay as it is installed as long as the ARENA PC has only 1 LAN

a. Check Enable if you want to use ARENA for dialing-in to a remote site.  
b. Uncheck Enable if ARENA is only used for receiving alarms.  
Example:  
If you have a scenario where one ARENA runs in the office to receive alarms  
while another ARENA runs on your notebook which you use only for dialing-  
in, choose the following setup:  
Uncheck Enable in the ARENA running in the office, because this is the one  
used as alarm recipient. Check Enable in the ARENA, running on your  
notebook, because this is the one used only for dialing-in to the remote site.  
iLON 10 and incoming connection settings will become read-only in this case.  
NOTES:  
Only one ARENA can be connected to an iLON 10 on the same site.  
You must configure the iLON 10 in the ARENA that is used as alarm  
recipient.  
When restarting the ARENA Service (see “ARENA Application” section),  
all iLON 10 will be automatically connected, independent of the Enable  
setting.  
c. Select Static IP if the connection is established using static IP addressing.  
d. Select URL (Use this if iLON 10 is configured for DHCP) if dynamic IP  
addressing is used by the iLON 10.  
e. If Static IP has been selected, enter the IP address in Remote Site URL or  
IP Address, the subnet mask in Subnet Mask and the gateway address in  
Gateway Address. Make sure that this is a valid IP address which can be  
reached from the supervisor ARENA. The default IP address is  
192.168.1.222. If you do not know which IP address to use, contact the I.T.  
administrator of the remote site (see also Incoming Connection from  
Remote Site settings). The subnet mask is used to define the subnet in  
which the iLON 10 resides. In the iLON 10 configuration (section "General"),  
this setting will be stored as subnet mask. The gateway address is the IP  
address of the gateway which iLON 10 uses to contact the supervisor  
ARENA. Used in LAN scenarios to resolve addressing if iLON 10 and the  
supervisor PC are in different subnets. Contact the I.T. administrator to get  
the gateway’s IP address.  
f. If URL (Use this if iLON 10 is configured for DHCP) has been selected,

ALARMS  
Overview  
Multi Site Alarming Support  
On a supervisor ARENA, alarms can be collected centrally from all sites.  
Manual Alarm Clearing  
The user can “artificially” create a going alarm for a selected coming alarm. If the  
user knows for sure that an alarm is gone, he can clear it.  
Determine Alarm Reason  
You can navigate directly to the alarm source.  
Link to the Alarm Destination  
Support of different dialling destinations  
It is sufficient that a remote site without ARENA dials to one destination central, a  
so-called “relay central”.  
Support of alarm routing for application and system alarms (=point alarms)  
The remote site routes system alarms and application alarms to different  
destinations. The selection of application alarms is done based on the datapoint  
name (=user address). This feature is supported indirectly through a relay ARENA  
using the alarm forwarding feature of ARENA. This means: A remote site always  
dials out to the same ARENA, regardless of the alarm cause. This ARENA acts as  
relay for further alarm segregation.  
Alarm Display  
Alarms can be seen on any level (Site, System, Plant, etc.). Depending on the level,  
the alarm list display differs in the number and kind of columns (alarm properties).  
Depending on the selected level, an alarm can feature at maximum the following  
properties displayed as columns in the list:

Alarms can be displayed in 2 different ways:  
Detailled View  
Coming and going alarms are displayed separately and can be acknowledged  
individually. The content of the list and the sort order of the list content can be  
configured.  
Summary View  
Coming and going alarms are displayed in one line. An alarm is regarded as  
acknowledged, if both, coming and going alarm, have been acknowledged. If an  
alarm is acknowledged, both alarms (coming and going) are acknowledged. The  
sort order of the list content can be configured.  
EN2Z-0906GE51 R0708

USER GUIDE  
ARENA/ RANGER  
NOTE: Both views can be configured separately.  
Alarm Handling  
When the controller is connected to ARENA, alarms are received automatically as  
soon as ARENA is installed or the remote site has been configured correctly using  
ARENA's site configuration.  
NOTES: Dial-up sites will automatically connect to the supervisor PC in case of a  
critical alarm. Alarms from LAN sites can only be received if the LAN site is  
connected explicitly. Make sure you connect to a LAN site once it has been  
successfully created. After exiting and restarting ARENA, previously  
connected LAN sites will be automatically reconnected.  
The PANTHER / TIGER controller will always send out critical alarms as  
soon as they occur. After alarms have been sent, a "blocking time" of 24  
hours becomes active for uncritical alarms. During the blocking time, no  
uncritical alarms are sent out. However, if there’s a danger of losing alarms  
(
because the controller’s alarm buffer is 80 % full), the uncritical alarm will  
be sent. Also, if a connection is established during the blocking time (e.g.  
as a result of a critical alarm), the pending uncritical alarms are sent.  
PANTHER / TIGER controllers try to send a critical alarm to ARENA  
directly after it occurred. If ARENA does not respond, the controller repeats  
the connection attempt each 5 minutes for ½ hour. After that, it repeats the  
attempt to reach ARENA each 4 hours, for 3 days. If ARENA does not  
respond for 3 days, the controller stops its attempt to reach ARENA. It will  
restart the attempt only after ARENA successfully dials into the site.  
Acknowledging Alarms  
ARENA allows the operator to document that he has seen an alarm. This is called  
“acknowledgement”. Acknowledgements can be made by Email (responding to a  
forwarded Email), or manually. The person who has made the acknowledgement is  
stored with the alarm and displayed in the alarm history. In case of Email  
acknowledgements, the sender’s Email address is an indication for the person who  
has made the acknowledgement.  
To acknowledge an alarm that has been forwarded by Email, just reply to the alarm  
Email (i.e. send it back to ARENA). ARENA will receive the Email via POP3, and will  
show the replier´s Email address in the acknowledged by field. If an  
acknowledgement has successfully been processed by ARENA, it will be deleted  
from the mailbox.  
To acknowledge alarms manually, click the alarm(s) in the alarm list and click the  
Acknowledge button on the Global Alarm List pane.

ALARM FORWARDING  
Alarm forwarding is possible to printers, eMail or mobile phone (via eMail), or  
service ARENAs. Alarm segregation allows forwarding alarms to different  
destinations based on definable criteria such as:  
Trigger (information of the alarm itself), such as: Critical / Non-Critical, site on  
which the alarm occurred, datapoint names, e.g. all points that start with “Heat”,  
and many more.  
Day of week  
Time of day  
Example:  
A local authority supervises schools and kindergartens using an ARENA 2.0 in the  
town hall. Usually, a supervisor employed by the city handles alarms from all  
connected sites. However, if the supervisor does not acknowledge alarms within 30  
minutes, they are being forwarded to external maintenance facilities according to the  
following rules:  
Only critical alarms are forwarded.  
All school alarms go to dedicated service centrals for schools. Based on  
weekday and time, different service centrals are used as destination. In the  
picture, this forwarding path is represented by gray arrows. In this example, 2  
destination centrals are available for schools: one Mo-Fr, 08:00-18:00 and the  
other for the rest of the week.  
All kindergarten alarms go to dedicated service centrals for kindergartens. Based  
on weekday and time, different service centrals are used as destination. In the  
picture, this forwarding path is represented by black arrows. In this example, 2  
destination centrals are available for kindergartens: one Mo-Fr, 07:00-17:00 and  
the other for the rest of the week.  
If a forwarded alarm is not acknowledged by the user for longer than 10 minutes  
on any of the service centrals, it will be sent to mobile phones via eMail. Different  
target phones can be contacted based on the time / day.

1.  
Hover the cursor over the Configuration menu icon  
and click Alarming  
in the configuration menu.  
The Forwarding pane displays. On the Forwarding tab, the forwardings are  
shown in a Forwarding List. A Forwarding consists of one or multiple  
Destinations where the forwarding is directed to and a Trigger which defines  
the events after which the forwarding is started, for example, after a critical  
alarm has occurred, or when an alarm has not been acknowledged within a  
certain time range. The forwarding can be enabled for a definable number of  
days (Mon, Tue, through Sun) with a time Buffer (delayed or not delayed) and  
many more criteria such as lifetime and update intervals, etc. A forwarding can  
also be disabled if you do not want to forward alarms to given destinations.  
2.  
Select the Forwarding tab and click Create new Destination button, or select  
the Destination tab and click Create Destination button. The Details Destination  
dialog box displays. Here you choose the destination (Email, Arena, or printer)  
and enter corresponding properties. Then you can test the destination and must

address. Note that each ARENA installation must have its own mailbox.  
c. In To, enter the E-mail address(es) for the recipients of the alarm. Multiple  
addresses can be separated by semicolon.  
d. In Cc, specify the E-mail address(es) for the recipients to which the alarm  
information should be copied. Multiple addresses can be separated by

a. In Connect Directly, select this option when the mail server is reachable via  
LAN  
b. In Dial to ISP first using, select the Dial-Up option to reach your mail server.  
Dial-up connections are typically used to connect to an ISP (internet service  
provider) when the mail server is not reachable via LAN.  
NOTES:  
Yahoo cannot be used as ISP because there are issues on the provider  
side concerning external email access. Use an alternative ISP.  
ARENA shows all dial-up connections on your PC here, except the ones  
used to connect to remote sites. ARENA will also allow creating new  
Dial-up connections to ISPs, which is the recommended way for alarm  
forwarding. You can choose an existing dial-up connection to an ISP.  
ATTENTION!  
When selecting an existing dial-up connection, make sure that the modem  
connection is set up in a way that it does not attempt to retry after the phone  
line drops, because this conflicts with the retry attempts of ARENA. You can

Sending Alarms (SMTP)  
NOTES:  
The SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) is preferentially used for  
sending/forwarding emails.  
To get information about the SMTP settings, go to the web site of the  
local ISP, invoke the Help function and search for the required  
information. The search and location where the information can be found,  
may differ from ISP to ISP. If no information can be found in the Help,  
contact the ISP directly.  
a. In Server Name or IP, enter the address of the SMTP server (name or IP  
address) you want to use to forward alarms e.g. “smtp.web.de”.  
b. In Port, you must change the port used to send/forward emails via SMTP if  
your ISP uses another port than the default port 25. Change it accordingly, if  
necessary.  
NOTE:  
It may happen, that an anti-virus software may block the port 25 which is  
necessary for sending emails. In this case, you must change the  
configuration settings of the anti-virus software in order to allow ARENA  
forwarding alarms (see Anti-Virus Software Tools and Ports in the  
”Security” chapter of the ARENA / RANGER Installation Guide, EN1Z-  
0906GE51).  
c. Check Server requires authentication and enter User and Password, if  
the Email-Server requires authentication.  
d. Uncheck Server requires authentication if the Email-Server does not  
require authentication  
e. Required Authentication protects mailboxes by user name and password.  
f. Check SSL, if the SMTP server uses the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)  
standard for the data transmission.  
Receiving Responses (POP3)  
POP3 (Post Office Protocol) is a client/server protocol for the communication  
between an email program on an individual user PC and a mail server in the  
internet hosting the mailbox of the user by an ISP (internet service provider). Via  
POP3, emails will be sent from ISP mailbox to the user PC.  
NOTE:  
To get information about the POP3 settings, go to the web site of the local ISP,  
invoke the Help function and search for the required information. The search  
and location where the information can be found may differ from ISP to ISP. If  
no information can be found in the Help, contact the ISP directly.

b. In Port, you must change the port used to receive emails via POP3 if your  
ISP uses another port than the default port 110. Change it accordingly, if  
necessary.  
NOTE:  
It may happen, that an anti-virus software may block the port 110 which is  
necessary for receiving emails. In this case, you must change the  
configuration settings xof the anti-virus software in order to allow ARENA  
forwarding alarms (see Anti-Virus Software Tools and Ports in the  
”Security” chapter of the ARENA / RANGER Installation Guide, EN1Z-  
0906GE51).  
c. Check Server requires authentication and enter User and Password, if

for sending emails via SMTP server.  
g. Check SSL, if the SMTP server uses the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer)  
standard for the data transmission.  
ATTENTION!  
Each installation of ARENA requires its own mailbox, when it is used for  
forwarding alarms. Ideally, you give the mailbox a name that allows you to  
determine which ARENA sent the alarm to you. The mailbox must usually  
reside on the POP3 server.

page is full, the alarms are printed. This is done to avoid waste of paper  
which would occur if each alarm were to be printed on an individual page. On  
line printers (which are typically used as protocol printers) the alarm is printed  
immediately. Typically, continuous paper is used for this purpose.
